Speak Flowers?

    We all love. Our cards and crafts show it. Our love can bridge cultures; transcend languages; and soften hearts.  

Don't you love what you do?  It's awesome, isn't it?

    I appreciate challenges that motivate us to exercise that love! ;)  Casual Fridays CFC1 (the FIRST ONE EVER!!!...check it out) calls for texting skills.  I was excited to use my "konnichiwa". I also wanted to try out these colors.

   PTI MIM 14's Selective Inking Technique is a great way to highlight a main phrase (in a sea of text).  By separating "flowers" on a chipboard piece, I can add a little dimension without fiddling with a bow.  Since I can't manipulate bows (yet), :) ....this works for me!

Thank you so much for stopping in!  Keep on lovin' like you do!
